Dr. Kerri S. Parks has been practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology at
Verdugo Hills Medical center, Huntington Memorial Hospital, and
Glendale Adventist Medical Center since 2000. Her Undergraduate
degree is in French and Chemistry from the University of Alabama. She also completed her Medical School there and then moved to Los Angeles for the residency program at Los Angeles County-USC/Keck School of Medicine Women's and Children's Hospital during the hospital's busiest years.
She has specific interests in Adolescent Medicine, post-menopausal
complaints and hormone replacement therapy. She is comfortable
prescribing bioidentical hormones, as well as more traditinal medicatons. For those women who are not good candidates for HRT, Dr. Parks is educated on many natural therapies for menapausal symptoms. She practices High Risk Obstetrics and has delivered many multifetal
pregnancies. She strongly supports breastfeeding and enjoys guiding
new mother's through the initial post-partum period.
Dr. Parks has published literature about sexually transmitted diseases, hormone replacement therapy, and post-partum depression. She is the co-creator of "Mommy Meditations", a new mother's guide to post partum depression and works with and refers to therapists and psychiatrists with subspecialties in the field.
Dr. Parks enjoys collaborating with alternative medicine physicians and has referrals for accupuncturists, chiropractors, pregnancy massage therapists, doulas, and midwives. She is an advocate for natural childbirth. Although she does not specifically "back-up" home deliveries, she is open to being a partner in pre-natal care and is supportive of most decisions that a woman makes regarding her delivery. Most importantly, though, she is open to all patient requests. Elective Cesareans are OK, too!
